All drivers charged with having a blood alcohol concentration over 80 or who fail/refuse to comply with a demand to provide a breath sample will have their vehicle impounded for seven days.
You will receive a notice from the police when you are released from the station saying where your car has been impounded.
You will need to bring someone with you to drive your car, as you will be subject to the 90 day automatic driver’s license suspension. You will also need to bring the documents the police gave you.
If you need more information on drinking and driving, contact Ottawa criminal defence lawyer Brett McGarry today. I would be pleased to help you understand your charges and defences. I offer free half-hour consultations to anybody facing drinking and driving charges in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario.
